  • This was tough but worth it! It took 2:30 up and about the same down. We have no hiking experience but fairly fit and able. Down was harder and a bit scary at times, we went fairly quickly with 1...  more »

  • The effort required to get from bottom to top is well worth the expansive view on the peak!
  • Amazing views after quite a tough hike.
  • Really gorgeous forest trail, epic ascent, and ridiculously beautiful views at the top.

  • It's kind of hard to give a rating for this hike hahaha. It almost killed me but the views were phenomenal. I would recommend making sure you have proper gear, including proper hiking boots, and do *not* underestimate the amount of water you need. We are slightly out of shape, in experienced hikers and we neglected both of these things and suffered for it. While we got up to the top in fair time, coming down was a huge challenge, made much worse by the fact that we had drank the last of our water on the ascent. The result was a shaky and arduous climb down that took us longer than it took to get up, and sore muscles that lasted for days after the hike. That said, the view at the top was absolutely stunning (for real, look at the photo) and completing this hike came with a huge sense of accomplishment and a funny memory of our own incompetence to look back on haha. So, bottom line: be honest with yourself about your level of fitness, take 3 times the amount of water that you think you need, take it slow and break often, and go properly equipped for the hike.
